One Web Day 2009
Posted by Allison Fine on September 5, 2009
One Web Day, the annual event created by Susan Crawford (not a HUGE star in the Obama administration!) to celebrate the virtues of the web is almost here! Mark down September 22, 2009 as One Web Day on your calendar.
This year, through the efforts of a lot of really smart, talented, dedicated people like Kaarli Taaso, David Isenberg, David Weinberger, Mary Hodder, David Johnson, Renee Edelman and others I’m afraid I’m leaving out, the board (of which I am grateful to serve as a member) helped to secure a very generous grant from the Ford Foundation to support One Web Day. That grant enabled us to hire an amazingly talented Executive Director, Nathaniel James and the legendary Mitch Kapor joined us as to become the President of the organization. Nathan and Mitch have been energetically creating partnerships and spreading the word about the day around the world.
So, go to One Web Day’s website, sign up for an event near you, tell your friends about OWD. We have a lot to be grateful for from the web — we should use September 22 to show our appreciation for being able to participate in this amazing revolution.
Here’s a great video about One Web Day:
